Saturday Night Live has returned to burn Donald Trump with a vengeance
Saturday Night Live has returned from its summer break, and ripped into President Donald Trump with a vengeance.
In the four months SNL has been away on hiatus, Trump has continued to cause outrage and take away LGBT people’s rights.
In August, he officially and indefinitely instructed the Pentagon to ban transgender troops from serving in the US Military.
This was after he announced the ban over Twitter, sparking a huge backlash and several lawsuits to be filed against him.
The Commander in Chief was accused of trying to pass the ban and the pardon Joe Arpaio under the radar while media outlets focus on Hurricane Harvey.
He faced claims of hypocrisy after an address he made on Monday night about the US Military in which he said there was “no room for prejudice… for bigotry.”
His Department of Justice appeared in court last week to argue that discrimination against gay employees is legal.
His administration sided with a Christian baker who said Jesus wouldn’t bake a cake for gay people.
The President has also failed to pass healthcare reform and been accused by North Korea of declaring war on the country.
That’s quite a lot to cover in one SNL episode – but Kate McKinnon, Alec Baldwin and the rest of the crew did it brilliantly.
Just in the first sketch, the show covers Trump’s response to Puerto Rico and NFL protests, plus the rapid turnover in his administration.
